NIPS CONSPIRACY
CUBAN POLICE DISCOVER PLOT
FOR UPRISING AGAINST
GOVERNMENT.
LEADERS UNDER ARREST
Second Scheme Failed This Year—Po
lice Traced Trunk Loaded With
Arms q,nd Ammunition,
Which Caused Arrest, ...
Havana, Cuba, July 11. Colonel
Jorge Valera, a mulatto, and six other
pfersons, most of them colored men,'
were arrested by the secret police to
day charged with conspiring to start
an uprising against the government.
The seven men were on their way to'
Vieja Bermeja, in the province of
Matanzas, to which place a trunk con
taining arms, ammunition and dyna
mite had been shipped from Havana.i
Letters and documents found on the
prisoners, who have been brought to'
Havana, are believed to implicate
many other persons in the conspiracy.
The trunk was traced by the police
officials to a medical school of Hava
na university. The janitor of that
institution was arrested today and a
large quantity of dynamite was found
in his possession.
It is not quite three months since
the last conspiracy against the gov
ernment was nipped in the bud by the
police officials. The agitation of the
race question In various parts of the
Cuban republic culminated on April 23
with the arrest of General Evaristo
Estenoz, (colored,) the leader of the
independence party, and four of his
associates.
Following the detention of General
Estenoz many arrests were made in
various parts of the Island in com
pliance with orders from President
Gomez, who announced his determina
tion to proceed, with the utmost vigor
against the elements responsible, for
the agitation, which, in effect was re
garded as a serious movement calcu
lated to develop an open revolution
against the government.

placed under the new trestle being
built by the Lehigh Valley railroad

explosion two sixty foot girders were
wrenched from their position, one of
them being driven through a steel car
on the New Jersey Central siding near
the trestle.
The second explosion three-quarters
of an hour later, tossed up two more
girders. The police believe both of
the bombs were set off by means of
time fuses and that the second bomb
was timed to explode amongst those
who had been attracted to the scene
by the first explosion. None were in
jured.
Crop Damage Overestimated:
Wasington, July 9.—In the opinion
of well informed staticians the failing
in the crop of spring wheat was con
siderably exaggerated throughout the
country so far as its effect on the
|?reat transportation companies and on
the total yield of cereals is concerned.
It is pointed out that the corn acre
age showed an increase of over 5,000,
000 acres, while the condition of winter
wheat, a more important crop than
spring wheat, showed an increase for
July over the report of June 1.
The corn crop promises to be a
large one, in the opinion of staticians
that the amount of cereals to be trans
ported will exceed that of last year.
Lighted by Electricity.
Washington, July 9.—The ancient
.city qf Tarsus in Asia minor, where the
Apostle Paul first saw the light Is
catching up with the progress of civil
ization and invention and is illuminat

er is taken from the Cydnus river.
There are now about 600 incandescent
lights for private use.
Killed Shooting at Coyote.
Minot, N. D., July 9.—Charles Sea
ton, a well known Ward county farmer
who has lived within two miles of
Minot for the past nine years, acci
dentally-shot himself th}s morning
while attempting to shott a coyote
near his home. Seaton's rifle struck a
projecting stump and was accidentally
discharged. The bullet passed through
his head. He is not expected to live
but a few hours.
Seaton came to North Dakota from
Minnesota nine years ago. He is a
graduate of the University of Minne
sota and very prominent in this com
munity.
Involved in Scandal.
Paris, July 9.—A great scandal In
volving ex-President Georges Clem
enceau has broken out in connection
with the trial of Henri Rochette the
.well known Freneff promoter, because
jof whose financial peculations the
French-Spanish bank and Credit
.Menier were closed in March, 1908,
.when Rochette was arrested on
charges of extensive swindling. The

to try Cuticura Remedies. After the

Unflattering Truth.
A Chicago physician gleefully tells
a child story at his own expense. The
•five children of some faithful patients
tad measles, and during their rather
long stay in the improvised home hos
pital they never failed to greet his
daily visit with pleased acclamation.
The good doctor felt duly flattered,
but rashly pressed the children, in the
days of convalescense, for. the reason
of this sudden affection. At last the
youngest and most indiscreet-let slip
the better truth.
"We felt so sick that we wanted
awfully to do something naughty, but
we were afraid to be bad for fear you
and the nurse would give us more hor
rid medic.ine. So we were awfully
glad to see you, always, 'cause you
made us stick out our tongues. Wei
stuck 'em out awful far!"
